  • 1/2 (250 g) package PHILADELPHIA Brick Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2/3 cup multi-colored nonpareils (orange, red and yellow)


  1. Mix flour, baking soda and 1-1/2 cups sugar until blended. Microwave butter and 3 oz. chocolate in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 minutes or until butter is melted; stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended. Add cream cheese; mix well. Gradually beat in flour mixture until blended. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
